Ascent Trip Report

We bushwhacked straight down the col and back up to Rocky. We came through the woods and found the canister by following the sounds of the 3500 Club at the summit. We headed down the north side of the peak and were caught in a sea of pine trees, forced to "swim" and crawl through the trees. We came down the drainage creek to the stream bed. Hiking back down the stream, my knee began grinding and we were passed by an 82 year old woman from the 3500 Club group on our way back to the car.
